It is not uncommon for lots of users to use weak passwords because they are easier to remember or to use scripts, templates and plug-ins which aren't updated for a long time. In either of these examples, it won't be hard for a hacker to take over the site and from that point on to take control of other sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we've added an advanced level security option named JailHost. It limits the access which a script has just to its own folder, so in the event that one of your websites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to access any other content part of your account, therefore the damage will be small. Needless to say, using JailHost does not substitute the security measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, but it will help you to limit any damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites inside a shared hosting account from our firm, you'll be able to protect them using the JailHost option with just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The option is accessible with all plans and can be enabled for any folder because the domains and subdomains in Hepsia have different folders, so files for various Internet sites never get mixed up like it regularly happens with other Control Panels. We haven't activated JailHost by default because you could use scripts which need access to folders outside the primary site folder and this option may interfere with their correct operation, but protecting all of the other folders is very easy. If any protected website gets hacked for whatever reason, we'll be able to restore it quickly as we'll have multiple daily backups of your entire account and you will even be able to browse the available backups through Hepsia.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Servers

JailHost is provided with all our semi-dedicated server plans, so in case you host several different sites, you can easily separate them from each other to keep them safe. This option has to be activated for each website and is not turned on by default, in order to avoid interference with scripts that require access to multiple folders within the account. Enabling it for all other domains will take no more than a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Unlike other Control Panels, Hepsia doesn't place multiple Internet sites under the main domain folder. Instead, every domain or subdomain has its very own folder, which makes it simpler to maintain and protect all of your Internet sites. In case that a site in your account is hacked, not only will your other websites remain untouched, but we will also be able to restore the affected Internet site in no time as we will have multiple backups of your content.
